Cabernet doré

The white grape variety is an interspecific new variety between Cabernet Sauvignon x Norton (it is relatively rare, but not impossible, for two red varieties to produce a white one). It contains genes from Vitis aestivalis and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 2001 in the USA at the University of California in Davis by Lucian W. Dressel. With the same parents the new breed Cabernet Diane was created (in this case a red variety). This moderately productive vine is resistant to frost and various fungal diseases. It produces golden yellow white wines with aromas of pineapple, papaya, banana and delicate muscatel. In 2016, half a hectare of vineyard area was designated in the US state of Kentucky (statistics Kym Anderson).

There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.
